A trip to my local Monoprix supermarket this morning unveiled what, to many, can be considered nothing short of a miracle. If you're from Philly, you'll sympathize, especially if you were a fan of the old Nabisco-turned-Kraft factory off Route 1...I can still smell the cookies..

Today, while I was looking disparagingly at some St-Moret cheese that I would have to use for a cheesecake, my eyes were attracted by an all-too-familiar logo. There it was, among all of the other cheeses, my beloved Philadelphia. In three varieties, no less. It's here -- the rumor's are confirmed. And as if the finding of such a wonder weren't miracle enough, the Philadelphia brand was actually cheaper then the St-Moret brand.
If Paula Deen doesn't convince you, I think the Aussies will charm you with their marketing campaign. You just gotta love it.
I bought three packs just in case Monoprix starts rationing it. I'm tempted to run back this evening to get the cucumber-flavored one to spread on my bage---er, on my baguette for breakfast in the morning...
Just a little trip down memory lane...
